THE INFLUENCE OF HULL FORM, APPENDAGES, METACENTRIC HEIGHT AND STABILIZATION ON ROLLING IN HEAVY SEAS
In this paper, the factors with primary influence on ship rolling are studied parametrically using recently developed and validated prediction methods. Factors include hull form, bilge keel and rudder size, metacentric height, and active stabilization. For each ship configuration, predictions are made for a range of speed and sea conditions. Results are presented in graphical form so that the effect of each parameter on rolling may be readily assessed.
